Coke and Milk Experiment

See what you should never ever mix together!
To begin our new video series called “HANDILAB”, I present what happens when you dare to mix two, most commonly drunk liquids in the world - Milk and Coke.

Neither I am a huge fan of Coke, nor Milk. I know many frightful uses of Coke, although since I don’t eat dairy products, I consider milk not less dangerous ... I treat myself with a bit of Coke on just one occasion, when there are no pills for my headache at hand. This beverage rises up the sugar level in my blood so fast that, after a couple of minutes, I am alive, and kicking again.

I know some use it as a remedy for stomach ache and other stomach problems. After making this video, (which was, as always, fun) the only thing I am sure of now, is that Coke likes to live its own life ;)

Do you know any other uses of Coca Cola? If you think you need to share it with others, feel free to do so on our facebook fan page!

Actually, it is a chemical reaction, nothing complicated and revealing, but after this short sort of an experiment, using your imagination, you will be able to take a look deep into your stomach to see this disgusting, cheesy, brown snot that appears after you drink milk.

It is a reaction of the Phosphoric Acid contained in the coca cola to the milk. Milk contains the protein Casein, when mixed with an acid the protein binds causing it to curdle. You will have the same effect when adding milk to anything acidic like lemons, vinegar, grapefruit etc.

Phosphoric Acid molecules attach to the milk giving them more density and separate out while the remaining liquid that makes up the milk and cocoa cola now being lighter floats on top. The solid matter is basically milk that has been curdled by the addition of more acidic soda.

Both items are acidic but coca-cola more than milk. In general, coca-cola has a pH of anywhere from 2.5-4.5 because of the Phosphoric Acid content where milk has a normal pH around 6.7 coke-milk-experiment01 coke-milk-experiment02
